Dunham Literary represents fiction, nonfiction, and children's books, including both authors and illustrators. We do not represent individual short stories, chapbooks, or novellas. We do not represent original screenplays.
Dunham Literary accepts query letters by email only! We do not accept queries sent by mail or fax, and we do not take pitches over the phone. After receiving a query letter, we request any and all projects that might be right for us.
Please choose one agent to query; we do share projects when we feel they would be a better fit for another agent here.
To submit a query letter by email, the correct address is: query(at)dunhamlit(dot)com (Note: this format has been altered in an attempt to reduce spam. Please replace (at) with @ and (dot) with a period when sending.)
Please paste the query letter and the first five pages in the body of the email. We do not open attachments.
Please do not send full manuscripts unless they are requested by us after receiving your query letter. We try to respond within four weeks from the time we receive query letters, but sometimes we are faster or slower.
Note: To prevent confusion, Dunham Literary, Inc. is a separate company from The Dunham Group.
